Thank You Iva Mae

A few years ago, my friend Iva Mae's husband came over and opened his trunk to reveal a five gallon bucket of daffodil bulbs. Iva Mae sent him over to give them to me. She loved her flowers but was not always able to work in the yard. She was not healthy and suffered with emphysema and diabetes, and died not before she told me that she loved me. Every spring I look out into my yard, back and front, and smile when the daffodils begin to bloom one by one. I will always think of her when I see them. Thank you Iva Mae :)

More Spring Pictures

Daffodils, grape hyacinths, forsythia, Bradford Pears, the first few weeping cherry tree blooms, hyacinths, and new growth on my red rose bush ~

It's late, but I wanted to post the pictures I took earlier today because if I don't do it now, I may forget :) Enjoy and God bless xox

Tuesday's Spring Gifts

Before I post the spring flowers, I wanted you to meet my oldest and one of my dearest friends... I affectionately call him, "Mr. G". He will be 94 in September and comes to visit me every now and then. He used to live down the street and moved a couple of years ago because he was "tired of being a slave to his yard". Sometimes I would sneak down there and pull weeds out of his beds for him, but he always caught me and pulled me inside to enjoy a hot cup of tea with him and a surprise cake or danish that he bought just for us to enjoy. He has 4 children and has lived through 2 wives and recently lost his girlfriend. When he talks to me, it is as if he can see right through to my soul. He is very close to God and attends bible study regularly. He lives in a retired senior citizens complex and teasingly tells me the women there are all too young for him :) I always think of him when my primrose blooms, under my bedroom window because he purchased it for me long ago.

Time for dinner ~ I'll post the flowers shortly :) xox
